Nick Praed is a Cornish and Maritime artist. Born in the fishing town of Newlyn in 1974 he grew up around the harbour and subsequently went to sea at the age of 18. His work at that time deeply reflected his many experiences at sea working on the boats and his love for that environment.
The sea is still very much the feature in Nick's work, however it is now more about capturing the beauty of the Cornish coastline and it's ever changing moods. You will still find the odd throw back to the fishing industry, a job which he still dip's in and out of but his subject matter has shifted to the many cliff's, cove's and headland's of this beautiful county.
